Atheist Blogger Arrested: Update I

The atheist blogger, currently being held but not charged, has posted an apology to his family, and Palestinians in general.  It is unknown whether this is related to some kind of deal for his release.  Human Rights Watch is calling for his release, and says:
Laws that criminalize the peaceful criticism of religious beliefs violate international human rights standards, and the PA should ensure that it applies legislation in ways that are consistent with international protections of the right to freedom of expression.
